Dr Maggie Woodhouse and her Team need your help…
Measuring the effect of bifocal spectacles on the ability of children with Down’s syndrome to focus at near, and to scan complex pictures.
They are looking for children and young people with Down’s syndrome (up to 18 years), who can travel to Cardiff University, to help with their study. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.
If you take part, they will record how you move your eyes while doing some tasks and they will also record how you focus at near doing the same tasks.
It is hoped that this study will lead to improved understanding of how to identify children who will benefit from bifocals, strengthening clinicians’ confidence in the therapy by providing a better evidence-base for prescribing decisions.
